Well done. We are in double digits and the sun is shining. I hope you noted that there were absolutely no complaints from we when it was below zero and sunny, nor when it was grey and snowing. I am willing to give too. This is a relationship and we both know this is not Florida; it’s Michigan.
Grey and wickedly cold – never
Wavering between snow and rain, i.e. sleet – no good
Nose searing cold, no snow and grey skies – don’t even think about it
Nose searing cold and sunny skies – acceptable
Crisp cold and sunny skies – excellent
Grey skies and a soft and gentle snowfall – perfectly fine
Thank you for your consideration. I know we exchanged some harsh words whilst working this out – that’s what the professionals call “tough love”. I am committed to you even when you are stupid and thoughtless and cause me such needless pain. I’m not giving up on you – you brought me Eden, for which I will be eternally grateful.
As those High School Musical Kids are always singing, “We’re all in this together”. And by “all” I mean you, me and the rest of Michigan.
